Housing and Community Support Services
Operating under the philosophy that “Housing is Healthcare”, Avenue 360 Health and Wellness incorporates into its service delivery strategy a focus on the broader social and environmental factors that influence health by addressing the housing and service needs of our community’s homeless and/or low-income individuals and families.
Adult Daycare services are provided at our licensed Day Activities and Health Services (DAHS) facility and provides services to individuals residing in the Houston/Harris County metropolitan area to prevent premature or unnecessary placement in institutions. Services are designed to address the physical, mental, medical, and social needs of individuals through the provision of rehabilitative/restorative nursing and social services which improve or maintain a person’s level of functioning.
For more information on this service, please call the facility manager at: (713) 341-3755.
Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) programs are designed to promote residential stability and positive health outcomes by offering indefinite stay housing options to individuals and families who are experiencing homelessness and where at least one member of the household has a documented disability. Services include rent subsidies, case management, transportation assistance, and advocacy.
To determine if you are eligible for Permanent Supportive Housing you must be assessed at one of Houston’s designated Coordinated Access sites. Information on Coordinated Access can be obtained on Houston’s Coalition for the Homeless website: www.homelesshouston.org

The Street Outreach team provides much-needed services to individuals and families living in places not meant for human habitation (streets, freeway underpasses, cars, encampments, etc.) in Houston/Harris County. In addition to linking individuals experiencing street homelessness with housing, medical, and benefits services, the team also provides clothing, food, and transportation assistance to address immediate needs.
SSDI/SSI Outreach, Access, and Recovery Services (SOAR) services provide support to homeless adults with mental illness, physical disability and/or substance abuse issues for the purpose of expediting the SSDI/SSI and medical benefits application process. Avenue360 employs 2 SOAR case managers who serve as the appointed representative before the Social Security Administration for clients who are homeless and disabled, using the SOAR process for filing disability claims.
